From Anna of the North’s forthcoming record Lovers, out Sep 8
Norwegian-Kiwi duo Anna of the North have shared a new video for “Someone”, the second single taken from their forthcoming debut album Lovers (released September 8th via Different Recordings). Directed by Anna Lotterud & Russell Crank, the Miami-based video focuses on the heartache, the guilt and the psychosomatic struggle of the morning after.
Anna explains “It’s a video made in Miami but it’s certainly not a stereotypical Miami video. The ‘party’ side to cities like Miami can feel vacuous, making them the loneliest places in the world. It’s about the internal battle of the day after; trying to accept that you’re human and how hard it is to forgive yourself for your own mistakes. It gets more desperate throughout as the realization sets in”. Watch the video below:
Anna of the North have also announced a new European tour. After playing Pukkelpop Festival, Maroochy Music & Visual Arts Festival and a series of shows in Australia, the Scandi-synthpoppers will head to London at the end of September before travelling across the continent in October and November. Tickets for their show at London’s Omeara and Bestival are on sale now.
